A Daring, Inventive New Crime Novel

Wes buys a carwash in LA’s Koreatown and gets a young Korean wife he’s never met as part of the bargain. The catch? Her five previous husbands were murdered before the honeymoon. Now Wes has a ring on his finger and a target on his back…and is caught in the middle of a centuries-old blood feud that won’t end until he’s either dead or the last husband standing.

"Mark Rogers knows that the stylish, polished picture frame in which we live is riddled with holes, in which worms live." James Sallis, author of Drive

"Mark Rogers delivers a genuinely fresh take on a modern crime novel. It’s fast and witty, with an eye for character and pacing that reads like early Charlie Huston." Jay Stringer, author of Ways to Die in Glasgow

"''Koreatown Blues' is a cleverly-plotted hard-boiled novel with crisp, muscular prose, a feverish pace, a vividly-drawn urban setting, and characters so real that Rudy Giuliani would stop and frisk them." Bruce DeSilva, Edgar-Award winning author
